The new wave of ‘vocal for local’ has proven to be a boost for Indian entrepreneurs. It has promoted local businesses and given customers the ability and motivation to shop with ease. This rebranded version of ‘Made In India’ has our support, and every week, TC46 spotlights small businesses and ventures you can champion and support easily through online and offline purchases.
What we absolutely love is that women have come out of the shadows of oblivion, and how! They are making their presence felt everywhere, and have made headway into male-dominated spheres that were once considered to be out of bounds. One such challenge is entrepreneurship.
This week, we’re cheering on three women-led small businesses that deserve your attention. Check them out!
Founder: Surbhi Singhania
What The Brand Offers: Boutique chocolatier
TC46 Loves: ChocoWishes is a boutique chocolaterie that specialises in high-quality chocolates, cookies, and healthy bakes with an increasing focus on sustainable and reusable packaging. All their yummy treats are eggless, artisanal, and handcrafted fresh in small batches! The products lie at the sweet spot of price and quality and especially add value to working millennials with a hectic schedule. They are one of the very few brands who have brought the famous Edible Cookie Dough to India, keeping intact our indigenous ingredients! They are also one of the top few brands that specialise in food-grade edible printing over chocolates and cookies. The products are curated for gifting purposes on special occasions like weddings as well as corporate gifting. They believe in gifting from the heart, via the taste buds.
